Story
This is Gorgie, She is a very sweet loving young lady. We've had her for 2 months now and found her on the streets helpless and starving. We took her in and fed and vetted her. She became very loyal and super loving to us. You can tell how happy she was just to have a roof over her head and food in her belly. She grew on us quickly and we care about her a lot. Would love to see her go to a good home. Unfortunately we cannot keep as we have 3 dogs and my one dog does not like her nor does Gorgie like her. She gets along with my other dogs fine, which one is a male and the other is a puppy. So I'm guessing its a female territory thing. She's around 3-5 years old and listens very well. She is very low maintenance likes to lay around a lot and plays lightly. She has had only 2 accidents in the house. She loves to snuggle and really needs a best friend to love on. She is very timid around new people and takes time to adjust to new environment but once she trust you she the best dog ever.

Story
Our pets are physically located and fostered in NC until adopted. Once adopted we can transport to you. We have a cost effective transporter that has stops in most north eastern states. She runs every 2 weeks. Please note! Don't just apply just because she has a cheap adopt fee. You must prove you can afford to adopt regardless! I find that most of the folks who apply for my reduced fee dogs back out when they realize they are still responsible for the transport fee. If this applies to you please don't waste our time!Scarlett was born 2-1-21. Her mom was a german shepherd golden mix. We are not positive what dad was. Scarlett is active and very loving. She is good with people and ok with other dogs her size. She is too playful for small dogs. She needs a large dog only home. She is good with cats. She needs an active home with room to run. She would not do well in a cramped up apartment with no exercise. She is house trained and crate trained,This baby will go home spayed and current on vaccinations, deworming, flea preventives, started on heartworm prevention and microchipped. This pup will receive a health certificate issued by our vet prior to going home. The adopter will get all his health records with the adoption.We require a prescreen application to apply.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Roscoe, a large shepherd mix who is 8 years old. He currently weighs 67 pounds. He came from animal control. When he was picked up he had massive hair loss due to being shaved and to allergies not being treated. Also he had severe infections in both ears and was underweight. After several months of care, healthy food and meds Roscoe's fur is coming back. There is one bald spot left under his neck. With his fur returning he has the cutest mutton chops (bush sideburns). He is blooming into a beautiful dog.    Roscoe will do well if his forever family or person were at home alot or could take Roscoe with them. He has separation anxiety. He will bark continuously with his Booming voice. He would do okay with another dog but Roscoe has a large, solid frame and can be a bulldozer (plays hard).    Roscoe is a sweet, loving dog who wants someone to be with him, to love and pet him. His favorite things are being petted and adored, meal times, treats and rides in the car. He rides in the backseat great but sometimes he likes to ride upfront.    Roscoe's needs include:  * Daily walks. He has high energy that needs to be walked.  * Forever Family or Person who will make Roscoe Family and make time for him. * Fenced yard for play and bathroom needs * To be only petVisit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 24, 2024, 7:14 pm
